Recent rumors suggest that the top-end Windows Phone 8 (WP8)-powered Nokia Lumia 925 will soon debut on AT&T.
Nokia released its first high-end WP8 smartphone, the Lumia 920, in Nov. 2012 and the handset was exclusive to AT&T. The Finnish company has also launched the Lumia 1020 exclusively on AT&T this year. The company also released the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 928 back to back in May this year. The Lumia 925, however, is currently exclusive to T-Mobile in the U.S.
"Windows Phone Central has learned that AT&T is poised to grab the Nokia Lumia 925 and that it will be launching mid-September on the US carrier. The thin and sleek aluminum Lumia will reportedly be the black version and cost $99 on contract. We have confirmed this information with two trusted sources," reports WPCentral.
AT&T is the only carrier in the U.S. to offer more than one high-end WP8 smartphone. The addition of the Lumia 925 in its smartphone portfolio may attract even more customers to the carrier's network.
Unlike the Lumia 920, which is available in four vibrant colors on AT&T - black, cyan, red and yellow - the Lumia 925 is currently available only in three colors: black, white and gray. Moreover, all three color options may not be available from AT&T.
AT&T has recently reduced the price of the Lumia 920 and now the handset is available for only $49.99 on a two-year contract.
The Lumia 925 is supposed to be a minor upgrade to the Lumia 920. However, Lumia 925 is the first and currently the only Lumia device to come in an aluminum chassis.
Both the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 920 have similar hardware specifications. Both handsets have the same display size of 4.5-inches and a 768 x 1,280 pixels resolution. However, the Lumia 925 uses AMOLED display technology and the Lumia 920 uses IPS LCD technology.
Both handsets run on dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processors clocked at 1.5GHz. An 8.7-megapixel rear-facing camera can be found in both the Lumia devices; however, the Lumia 920 has a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, a slight bump compared to the 1.2-megapixel camera found on the Lumia 920.
At 5.08 x 2.78 x 0.33 inches, the Lumia 925 is a bit smaller than the Lumia 920, which measures 5.13 x 2.79 x 0.42 inches. The Lumia 925 also weighs only 4.90 ounces, which is comparatively lighter than the Lumia 920 which weighs 6.53 ounces.
AT&T hasn't confirmed the Lumia 925 on its network so we will have to wait until the carrier officially announces the handset.
